I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

I can't be arsed to read the scoring system, so can I assume that it doesn't matter what a rider is designated as, he still gets points for whatever he does? So for example if I have Cav as my sprinter but he rips up the mountains and wins KOM, he still gets those points? Or do mountain points only go to who I've picked as climbers?

I'm in too. Team Black, White and Furry is coming to the roads near you...

(Can't believe that there's another SpaceBadger out there. Come forward the new, improved SpaceBadger01, indicating my position over imposters!!)  :demon:

So far, so good... A respectable 6th position after yesterday.  :)

Jens Voigt and Nicolas Roche are letting me down badly at the moment :(

All I can say is it's just as well I picked Cadel for my team, otherwise I'd be languishing at the bottom of the table rather than somewhere in the middle. He accounts for somewhat more than half my points so far.

Still, it's a marathon not a sprint...

I'm still pretty happy with my team, not sure I'd change anyone if I could. We'll see how worth while Cunego was when we hit something more mountainous. Here's hoping for a top 10 for the little prince.

If I could change one rider, it would be Chavanel (hopefully he'll recover/find his luck and start pulling points out of the bag).

I also have Jens Voigt, but one has to, really :)  (and he's contributed more points so far for me than either Cunego or Gesink, but I'm hoping their days will come when the terrain changes).

Same here. I was expecting big things from him but the French nationals seems to have been a blip in a run of bad form and/or bad luck.

I've also been disappointed in Voeckler - he's been combative but to little effect so far.

Serves me right for backing Frenchmen to do well in the Tour...

The one I really wish I'd picked (who I did consider as an alternative to those two) is Geraint Thomas.

Hopefully, I'll start picking up a few points from Garate, Monfort and Cunego from tomorrow, when the scenery starts to get really interesting.

So we both picked Voeckler, Garate and Cunego, and both wish we'd picked Thomas?  I'm starting to like you  ;)

I'm glad I picked EBH though.  He's paid me back by bouncing me off the bottom end of the table.

I'm most annoyed about Petacchi - I had hoped he was going to make an effort to pick up points after taking the green jersey last year.

Geraint Thomas is serving me well again this year.

Also waiting on Cunego to go uphill fast.
